's not what you're look at. mitt romney was just talking the jargon of someone who does private equity and it's just not -- at the same time, though, in the last year he's told us that he can create jobs and knows the economy better because of his bain cap pal experience. >> but michelle, let me ask you, harvest companies -- buy companies and harvest them, where can you even find the most generous stretch you can, find job creation? >> it is unfortunate imagery and it's a rarafied field and this is the downside to the way romney has made his entire campaign, kind of a referendum on obama' private sector experience, he talks up a good game, you know, kind of inflating what any president would be able to do on the job creation front. so, you know, you run across something like this and of course people are going to jump on it because romney himself has made job creation and his ability to do that central to his entire candidacy. >> but, david, let's be fair. he does care. he, romney, has some compassion in an interview with nbc, he showed how he cared by promoting romney care. look at this. >>
a visit to the island where mitt romney money les. 'll have a theai of lands for a little trip to talk it over. share your thoughts with us on facebook and on twitter using #edshow. we're right back. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." another video has surfed showg thalt ey "mother jones" has done it again. this time getting a video from bain and company by a former employee. sometimes they'll get you every time, won't they? the video celebrates the company's 25th anniversary. and includes footage from 1985 of romney talking about bain fedtal, tpiff cpora at the time, bain capital was relatively new and romney explains the company mission. >> bain capital is an investment partnership which was formed to invest in startup companies and ongoing companies. then to take an active hand in managing them and hopefully five to eight years later to harvest them at a significant profit. the fund was formed on september 30th of last year. it's been about ten months then. it was formed with million in investesh ior to "mother jones" obtaining it but the key phrase in the videotape is this. harvest
celebrates the company's 25th anniversary. and includes footage from 1985 of romney talking about bain capital, the spinoff corporation he founded. at the time, bain capital was relatively new and romney explains the company mission. >> bain capital is an investment partnership which was formed to invest in startup companies and. then to take an active hand in managing them and hopefully five to eight years later to harvest them at a significant profit. the fund was formed on september 30th of last year. it's been about ten months then. it was formed with $37 million in invested cash. >> editing of the video was done prior to "mother jones" obtaining it but the key phrase in the videotape is this. harvest them at a significant profit. now, this may be no big deal to private equity firms, but let's be very clear. romney basically is describing an economic model firmly rejected by the middle class of this country, because they are the ones who suffer. the people that lose their jobs to see them go overseas. that's an economic model. which throws workers to the wolves. romney has been gra
. one of the things they talked about, they said it in "the new york times," let's get mitt romney and paul ryan out on the road together because ryan seems to loosen him up a little bit. but then, you know, some people are making fun of what happened in ohio yesterday. let me play that clip for you. >> wow. that's quite a guy, isn't it? paul ryan. isn't that something? >> ryan! ryan! >> wait a second. romney, ryan. romney, ryan. romney, ryan. there you go. i guess the question becomes are people pushing him into something he's not? he got good interviews in. is the trouble in part when romney tries not to be romney? >> yeah, i think it's ironic that they're saying let ryan be ryan. but throughout then tire process, we've really not been 100% clear who mitt romney is, right, because the guy who was governor of massachusetts, had he run as that guy, he would have been more like the guy we saw on "60 minutes." he's been forced to run this eternal primary where he's constantly trying to please the farthest right base of the republican party and so he isn't really being allowed to make
, we talk about the 47% video, i'm hearing more and more people in the romney campaign as every day goes by, they understand more and more that they made a huge mistake with that libyan press conference. i'm not going to say that it was sort of that september 15th moment, the economy is sound, but john mccain last time, but i can't tell you how many pollsters are telling me that that was -- it made him look unpresidential. "the wall street journal" leading with their editorial today, "the libya debacle." the more we're finding out about benghazi, the more it looks like a gross security failure. and you know, something the romney campaign told me, this is the biggest mistake we made on libya. if you give the media a chance to talk about politics or policy, they'll talk about politics every time. and we get out in front of it, so all everybody talked about those first few days was the politics of it. but the policy looks, willie, more and more like a gross security failure. you've got so many warnings coming in and so many warnings that were ignored. now the administration, the lead o
of that ad, guys u t,k. ou, wth video first came out of governor romney talking, i wasn't sure if it would have a long shelf life, but it has a lot of resonance with voters, certainly has a l of resonance with the chattering class, and that ad is subtle, but it draws -- they clearly think it'soing to draw o the fegst t voters have and an awareness that a lot of voters have and particularly on a day when governor romney is trying to drive the message about veterans and support for the military. to feature some people from the military in that spot, this is going to be a thing they com back to again and again and'l on think governor romney has dealt with it effectively. you can't go out and assert that you care about people. you've got to do something i think that shows people in an emotional and concrete and resonant way and he's not solved that yet amongst the problems he still hato solve. yeah. your thoughts, john? whatike about itsws porty and working poor, the working poor phenomenon in this country where you work very hard but don't make enough to live above the pover level, is not an
or reporters who don't like mitt romney. this is what every republican i talk to is saying, scratching their head saying how can he continue to waste another day? i'm looking at my calendar every day, when is he going to win a single news cycle? >> i would argue more positive for obama and say he's doubled the stock market, he's taken the unemployment rate from double digits down to eight. if he does that again, he'll take it down to six. if you want to say i'll take it down two or three points further, just stay on that continu continuum. let's take a look at this. a new obama campaign ad just put out a powerful ad airing in swing states that uses romney's own words against him. let's listen to this. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. who are dependent upon government, who believe that they're victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it and they will vote for this president no matter what. and so my job is not to worry about
on the turmoil in the middle east. also, mitt romney talking aid, trade and more drilling down on foreign policy. we're going to hear what he's saying. and the news many homeowners have been waiting for years to hear. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> a brief break from the verbal sparring, the white house race. president obama stepped back in the global spotlight in new york today addressing the united nations assembly. he spoke at length about the turmoil in the middle east touting diplomacy and coalition building as the solution to the crisis to the region that's been vexing his administration. jessica yellin is traling with the president in new york. jessica, give us an update. what did the president say? >> reporter: wolf, when the president spoke here he had two major audiences, a global audience and a domestic audience. voters listening now to foreign policy issues with a new ear and a new eye after this violence in libya. and the president addressing it all just six weeks out from the election. at the united nations, president obama used the world stage to declare. >>
the national economy. why is romney talking about deficits, given that we have unemployment crisis? they looked at states that they thought of as a target, new hampshire. this is an issue that resonates with swing voters. i think that is one thing to keep in mind. you have these strands that cannot always cohere in a way that works for you if you are candid. that is one thing to keep in mind. it is interesting to think about -- and again when you have the stagnation for much of the country including a lot of these folks, you have household income growth for people at the high end. what does that mean? one thing it means is that if you look at snap enrollment, people talk about how increase in three years. it increased since 2000. medicaid. when bill clinton gave his talk at the democratic national convention he was incredibly shrewd because he did not talk about medicare. why did he not talk about medicare? medicare is not the real difference in terms of numbers between these two campaigns. it really is medicaid. when you look at medicaid and who benefits from medicaid, it is a lot of white, wo
be a game changer? forget all that talk about romney, the amateur debater. republican governor chris christie says the debate will be a game changer. >> i've seen mitt romney do this before. he's going to come in wednesday night. he's going to lay out his vision for america. he's going to contrast what his view is with what the president's record is. the president's view for the future. this whole race is going to be turned upsidedown come thursday morning. >> oh, but the question is to zing or not to zing? word on the street is mitt romney has been practicing zingers since august. the kind of zinger that resonates, like when lloyd benson said to dan quayle, you ever know jack kennedy? of course, benson lost. as for president obama, though, his camp says there will be no time for zingers. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. but what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard working americans. >> but not in a smug, elitist, arugala loving way. at least that's what his a
should have. >> go ahead. >> it's a little hard for mitt romney to talk about what he is going to do on health care when he said he is going to repeal all of the affordable care act then say i'm going to keep some parts of it. so again, it's sort of like dude, exactly what are you trying to do here? i think the difference between george w. bush, he ran as a compassionate conservative and he had his conservative base locked up. romney's dealing with people whobds we're not really trusting you. if you're the obama campaign, what jim messina should do, he should play the video of alec baldwin and glenn ross saying always be closing. the one thing you cannot understand, a poll's a poll. folks have not cast any ballots, so the obama campaign should stay aggressive. stay absolutely aggressive because if you just sit back a little bit, you could cause this race to narrow. that's the last thing they want. >> thanks very much to both of you. and later in our hour, our guest, a man who once said mormonism is a cult said this race is not over and he's got one thing he says mitt romney to do to
the upcoming debate. what does mitt romney want to talk about when it's all over. we heard chris christie say come sunday morning, chris game time and what is it we'll be talking about. there's a great game in the country -- people have been looking for a change, they just haven't found it yet in mitt romney. he has not made the sale. we have seen a lot of presidential races where the challenger gets on the stage and the overall metrics in this case is unemployment, it's the deficits, it's the volatility of the markets, it's gas prices, where they're looking and giving romney a good, you know, once -- lookover i call it. if he can't make the sale in these debates, he's doomed. he has the opportunity to show not -- the metrics favor a challenger in a case like this, but the challenger's got to make the case. >> how about the president, does he have to have a do no harm strategy, does he have to have a solid performance and that's about it to close the deal? >> he has to do more than rope a dope to close the deal. and very well. as sotom alluded to as well. if these debates are really on issues
. >> stephanie: here is mitt romney talking about armageddon caused by obama. dogs and cats living together. >> romney: syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our ambassador of libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving toward nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. >> dictating events all over the world. we need to be is have military bases throughout the middle east and when i'm president not only will we be bombing iran -- >> stephanie: i didn't think the world could hate anyone quite as much as george w. bush but romney -- he's already preinsulted the world and he's not even close to being in office. john in las vegas you're on "the stephanie miller show." welcome, john. >> caller: thanks for taking my call. >> stephanie: thank you. >> caller: i would like to talk about the voter suppression laws the governors are trying to pull. i think it's funny how
on china saying that if you look at romney's record at bain capital, all that talk is fake. >> when you hear this newfound outrage, when you see these ads, these running problems seem to get tough on china, it seems a lot like that fox saying we need more secure chicken coops. i mean, it's just not credible. >> and larry, you can hear the confidence in president obama's voice because not only in ohio is he ahead, but in all of the major swing states president obama's got a lead right now. mitt romney's got to find a way to turn that around, turn it around in the debates, and maybe the tax cut issue that you're talking about will be one tool in that arsenal. back to you, larry. >> many thanks to john harwood. now for some reason on the trail today, mitt romney said he's going to dial back on taxes. >> individual income taxes are the ones i want to reform, make them simpler, bring the rates down. by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. >> all right. i don't get any of that. i'm not sure what his message was. let me say
romney mentioned it on leno and we will talk that about later on the show. i will say in times of duress, i always go straight to camera, after the break, as both campaigns barnstorm and blanket the air waves in battleground states, one factor that could make six weeks largely irrelevant and could spell trouble for governor romney. >> i think a loyal republican says the house is on fire, and time is running out, if we want to save this house, we better do it now. guess what? time is running out. you know when early voting starts in ohio. in less than a week. i was saying last week, 45 days, there aren't really 45 days left. they got to turn this thing around or they lose. >> team romney's hunt for a red october next on "now." bob... oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks great. didn't realize they did photoshop here. hey, good call on those mugs. can't let 'em see what you're drinking. you know, i'm glad we're both running a nice, clean race.
this bit of mitt romney talking about the emergency landing last week that at a time was carrying his wife ann romney. >> i appreciate the fact that she is on the ground safe and sound. [applause] and i don't think she knows how worried some of us were. when you have a fire in an aircraft, there is no place to go exactly. and you can't find any oxygen to get in the aircraft. the windows don't open. i don't know why they don't do that. about it's a real problem. >> it's a real problem that the windows don't roll down onaire planes. is it also a problem that guns don't shoot backwards and diving boards are only built over deep water? i don't think he was joking. you can't joke about your wife almost being in a plane crash. megyn: joining me is nina easton. and bill mcbern. let me start with you. you are married to a senior adviser to the romney campaign but you have a long history as a straight news jltd. rachael maddow is not a straight news journalist. take a look at "huffington post." they write, mitt romney wonders why anne romney's airplane windows don't roll down. yahoo, why plane wind
seeing things moved after that bourse debate mitt romney will talk about factual information with the media does not want americans to no-space expectations are so low he does not have to win in order to win. we need to pull outside of urban america. everybody is not skewed in one direction or the other i don't think obama will win this blown away. lou: will it get tighter with the benghazi murders and terrorist attacks that the white house tries to cover up stonewalling the press and congress is a dangerous strategy? >> a more facts that come out is a tragic stage travesty. the ambassador to the wind sent us a video now we know al qaeda was involved. >> did we really know? >> the president said before the u.n. general assembly. >> six days after the event event, five days after they knew from american intelligence it was done by outcry that affiliated group nothing to do with the video it did not help but that is not what happened in egypt egypt, tunisia, other countries, a tax on american embassies. >> spending $70,000 of pakistan to run a commercial with hillary clinton ap
it -- fascinating that so many people are talking about romney had a gaffe. it turns out he was right. that one that it was wrong to put pout an n a statement -- criticizing the -- apologizing for the video which the administration continued to do and obama will do again today in his u.n. speech. but also, you know, who had the foreign policy gaffes? it has been president obama. president obama went on "60 minutes" and called what's happening in the middle east bumps in the road. first ambassador killed since 1979 is a bum open the rop on t? >> mr. obama came back and said bumps in the road meant there is going to be problems in the middle east you have to deal with. >> i'm sure -- >> i'm just trying to be fair. >> i'm sure he tried to spin it. well, no. i mean, the thing is no one is fair when mitt romney supposedly makes a gaffe that turns out not to be a gaffe. when president obama says something like that, everybody is busy explaining it away. this was a major foreign policy gaffe. that same interview, he said that israel -- complaints from israel were just noise. referred to israel's compl
romney needs to do? >> oh, i think mitt romney needs to talk about failure and success. mitt romney may not be the perfect candidate, but this president doesn't have much in the way of accomplishments, especially when it comes to this economy. he has to say look, barack obama, you may have succeeded as a politician but you haven't succeeded as a president. i know what it takes to succeed in life, hai've done it a lot i business creating growth and jobs. let's talk about that. >> it does seem in the last couple days his campaign has been kind of trying to make him seem like a warmer guy. i mean, that photo -- >> hes loosened his tie, taken it off. he's laughed a little more. the job for mitt romney clearly is to get in the ring, get in the arena and to show that he can handle these tough issues. he hasn't been specific. he has to avoid talking about taxes, has to avoid talking about the 47%. he has to play offense. and president obama has to make sure that he doesn't play preventive defense. >> just being on that stage with the president, does that make mitt romney seem more presidential
ryan earlier. >> i was a little bit confused yesterday, congressman, when mitt romney was talking about the tax cuts he was invisioning, they would not be as big as you think, when you factor out you know, how we would phase out exemptions and allowances and deductions it may not be the big tax cut a lot of people were looking forward to. is he trying to brace us for some bette bitter news. >> no, lower tax rate, triggers economic growth, when people ask about, whose tax loopholes are you go after? we say by closing tax shelters for higher income earners, that allows us to lower tax rates for everyone. middle income tax payers get higher take home pay, businesses get lower tax rates that helps theme compete globally, and create job, by denying tax shelters to hire income earning that means we can lower tax rates on everyone without losing revenue, we get more revenue because we continue will glow the economy, these kinds of pro growth tax reforms, ronald reagan and tip o'neill did it, we are proposing it that a pro growth sleuth t solution to gete back to work. neil: left out but a rema
for the denver debate. joining me now to talk about it, garrett hake, who has been traveling with the romney campaign. garrett, good saturday afternoon to you. what can you tell me about governor romney's debate preparations this weekend? >> well, craig, i can tell you, so far, it hasn't really started at. at the moment, he's over at his oldest son's house in massachusetts. we are expecting governor romney to participate in some more debate prep this weekend. understand senator rob portman from ohio will be here, he'll also be traveling with the governor to denver on monday. they're at the stage now where the expectations game includes not really discussing even when and where they're doing debate prep. the campaign's official line, wherever's preparing for debates, is that he's holding private meetings. they don't want to give the impression that he's doing nothing but studying. >> because, again, if you study for 75 hours for a test, you better make an a-plus, or people begin to say funny things about you. it seems like every day or so, we hear from a new republican, who's hitting the romn
, because we keep talking about romney, what do both of them need to do. >> one point, the debate is the be all and end all, there is not universal consensus there has to be a clear, you know, resounding victory for romney. he has to do well, no doubt but, the benchmark, the debate, the debate, falls into the media mean of romney has to perform and if he doesn't it is an excuse of another round of in my mind disgustingly bias pieces against mitt romney and i believe bill is exactly right. when barack obama was challenged in that univision interview, last week, by hojorge ramos, he looks uncomfortable when he's confronted with facts and simply worded question, when mitt romney reminds people, we have 11.7 unemployment, not 8.1%, america's best days have to be in front of her, i think he wins, not by having a, quote, human moment. i think that is a fool's earring but having a moment of real leadership and maturity. contrasted with a celebrity president who is comfortable with ellen or any of these late night hosts, than he is talking to the families of these insider attacks. i think
this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they believe after a tough week or ten days, the last several days, they have a little bit of a breeze at their back. they say the race has stabilized. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in this first debate? the economy. look at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if he wins the election. and you know this full well, the reason this debate and what both candidates say in the economy is so important is the friday morning after the wednesday night debate, we'll get the latest unemployment report. if governor romney could turn in a strong debate performance and another tepid jobs report, there's a chance for this race to change after debate number one. >> if you're the obama campaign, you're looking at all these numbers in our brand-new poll. what's most encouraging to you? >> repo
to talk about specifics, look at what president obama said. >> talk about mr. romney. if you're going to talk about the president, we will have to close the discussion now, but if you're -- >> this is a martin game here, of course. let's not beat up on the president -- >> we're just talking about mr. romney. >> the fact of the matter is what i said at the outseth still stands. i think it's about a vision of where you want to take the country and how you want to move forward. as it relates to his tax plan, he has said very clearly that, a, he wants to cut certain tax loopholes, b, he wants to keep the bush era tax cut rates in place, and c, we need to make sure we can work with congress in a bipartisan fashion to get it done. i think that's very fair, i think it's a question that will be asked of him tomorrow by jim lehrer. >> it's also been deemed as mathematically impossible. thank you. as the candidates gear up, we are headed to denver. we will broadcast live from the university of denver, so be sure to tune in tomorrow, 4:00 p.m. eastern. >>> next, the 47 and bain. sure to take cen
to be the highest watched debates ever, just because people are anxious to see what mitt romney will talk about, because he has gone this far and it feels to me like his campaign has been i am not barack obama. we want to hear specifics. i am just concerned and his approach. i just want to see what it's going to be. i voted for the president the last election even though i am independent. there's a lot about the republican platform, the party platform that i agree with and there's a lot about the democratic party platform i don't agree with. but when it comes to leadership, it has been really embarrassing to watch mitt romney. it is just sad. so this will be his chance. peter he will pull it off or not. i am not going to vote for him just because of-principle of- he will pull it off or not. i am not going to vote for a mormon. it is the core of who he is because of his leadership in the turkischurch for 10 years. i feel that influences a lot of his decisions. host: nothing he can say tomorrow night would change your opinion? caller: no, but i would like to see him still be a viable candidate an
